Great Decisions Discussion Series: We have wrapped up the 2016 Discussion Series and are looking ahead to the 2017 topics. The Great Decisions Discussion Program is the oldest and largest grass-roots world affairs education program of its kind in the country. Each year, the Great Decisions editorial board selects eight of the most pressing global issues and regions that will be the focus of the briefing book, television programs, and online resources. Dodgeville Public Library has participated in the program since 2009 and selects 4 to 6 topics each year for our local discussion group. If you are interested in discussing world affairs with fellow engaged citizens contact email@example.com.

U.S. Public Libraries Weather the Storm Public libraries continue to transform lives by providing critical services and innovative solutions to technology access, in spite of years' worth of cumulative budget cuts. Libraries are part of the solution for those in search of the digital connection and skills required by today's competitive global marketplace. However, unless strategic investments in U.S. public libraries are broadened and secured, libraries will not be able to continue to provide the innovative and critical services their communities need and demand.
